Planting palm trees can be a daunting task. From finding the right location to prepping the tree, a lot can go wrong without proper care. Improper handling of the installation can lead to issues with your tree down the line.
At Anderson Tree Care, we take care of the tricky stuff. Our licensed specialists have the experience, tools, and know-how to plant any palm tree. We will ensure the well-being of the tree, as well as the safety of your home and property.
Typically, the best time to plant palm trees is spring and early summer. Fall and winter can be stressful times for palm trees to become acclimated to a new environment, especially young palm trees or pups. You want to give your palm tree about 5-6 months of established growth before the first cold snap hits. We understand how imperative the planting of a new palm tree can be to its overall health. When planting a new palm we ensure that the hole is roughly twice the size of the palm’s root ball and that about one inch of the root ball sits above the soil. Depending on the type of palm tree that you’ve chosen for your climate will determine your maintenance schedule. However, it’s typically routine to keep the palm bulb well-watered and begin feeding your new palm tree roughly one month after planting.
